I found out that Gary Rom himself would be doing my hair- how exciting!
It was really unlike ANY other hair salon experience I’ve ever had.
Her: “So what are we doing today?”
Me: “Er, I’m not really sure, maybe a trim and some layers?”
Her: “Okay, how about a colour shampoo to give you some lift?”
Me: “How much does that cost?”
Me: “It’s okay, I can do without the lift. Just a cut is fine”
Not with Gary. This was a full THIRTY minute consultation. You’re probably wondering what we spoke about for 30 minutes. He asked me things like whether I have kids, if I like to blend in or stand out in a room of people and how much spare time I have. He also considered my body shape and height, as well as the colour history of my hair.
His view is that all these factors contribute to the type of haircut you should have. Like if you have a 6 month old baby, it’s pointless giving you a haircut that takes 25 minutes to style because you won’t be able to manage it. Also, he WON’T colour your hair if your hair is not in a suitable condition. Quite a change from most hair salons who try to push colour just because its expensive.
